More Democratic Candidates Support Changing Electoral College

More Democratic Candidates Support Changing Electoral College

But thanks to the antiquated electoral college, we have a serial-lying huckster occupying the highest office in the land-and while there's been talk of getting rid of the electoral college for years, the movement may be finally picking up traction. "That's more than any other part of the constitution".

White House hopefuls Elizabeth Warren, Beto O'Rourke, Kamala (KAH'-mah-lah) Harris and Pete Buttigieg (BOO'-tuh-juhj) have either called for the abolition of the Electoral College or said it's an idea they're open to.

The system is lauded by Republicans because it forces candidates to earn votes from various parts of country, not just the big cities. That effort eventually got the support of 80% of Congress.

Warren endorsed the compact after her town hall. "Even president Nixon was on board, but it was filibustered to death in the Senate by southerners led by Strom Thurmond".

However, the President is a strong supporter, tweeting Tuesday "The brilliance of the Electoral College is that you must go to many states to win".




'We need to make sure that every vote counts....'

"I think everybody ought to have to come and ask for your vote", Warren said.

In the early primary state of Iowa, O'Rourke said on March 15 that expanding the Supreme Court needs to be explored: "What if there were five justices selected by Democrats, five justices selected by Republicans, and those 10 then picked five more justices independent of those who chose the first 10?"

The Green New Deal and "Medicare for All" are old news.

Like the Supreme Court, the Electoral College sometimes frustrates the will of political majorities. During Barack Obama's presidency, many predicted he may benefit from an Electoral College advantage. "It won't happen, I guarantee you, it won't happen for six years".
